With the free software WikiTaxi compatible with Windows XP and Vista, you can consult the encyclopedia without being connected to the Internet. Manual.
The idea of access to Wikipedia without being connected to the Internet is attractive. Navigating among the millions of information contained in the free online encyclopedia and integrate all on a USB drive seems to hold more fiction than reality. Yet, it is possible. The miracle is WikiTaxi. This software is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, you can download Wikipedia on your hard disk, and then consult the encyclopedia even without an Internet connection.
The program operates a special Wikipedia: directors are in regular backups of the encyclopedia, called Dumps. These files contain articles that clearly present for the backup, so that the most recent items are excluded. If you think your base is too old, you can always connect to the Internet to get a newer version of Wikipedia: you would then repeat the process we describe here.
The software WikiTaxi is in English, but it works with any language Wikipedia, so you can work perfectly with a database in English and another in French. The volume of data necessary to host Wikipedia depends on the size of the backup that you have selected. There is a basic English reduced by 25 MB compressed. It fits on a key 64 Mo.
It can be easily transferred on a USB key standard 4 GB or more. Now you can walk with Wikipedia in your pocket! Warning: manipulation that we describe here are aimed at users of a good technical level.
